re: What books / resources do you reccomend for learning economics?

Oh jeez, good question. If you are interested in a good overview, I'd recommend something like this:

The Wealth of Nations - Adam Smith
The Theory Of Moral Sentiments - Adam Smith
Capital - Karl Marx
Thinking Fast and Slow - Daniel Kahneman
Capital in the Twenty-First Century - Thomas Piketty
Debt: The First 5000 years - David Greaber

I've also heard good things about this one:
Basic Economics: A Citizen's Guide to the Economy - Thomas Sowell


Debt: The First 5000 Years is one of the best books I've ever read. Great rec.
